The Hurmu Genocide was a genocide against the Hurmu nation, c. 1602–1604. It marked the end of Hurmu as an independent country and culture. Only a few survivors of the Hurmu genocide survived.

The genocide consisted of the murder of hundreds of thousands of Hurmu people and the destruction of cultural heritage sites across Hurmu.

According to survivors, the genocide was committed by Jingdaoese soldiers, who sang songs in the Cibolan-Saxon language that were so awful and amplified with massive nuclear-powered speakers that would knock down buildings if played next to them, the people of Hurmu died of sonic terror and acute infections to the ear. Jingdao disputed this was done in an attempt to murder the people, and claimed only to wish to provide entertainment. According to Jingdao, the Siseranists who arrived in Hurmu in 1602 did so on the invitation of the Chairman of the Order of the Holy Lakes, Sindre Nemnai, and allege further that only joyful music was brought to the land. The subject of the theft of the Hurmu Gate by Jingdaoese soldiers, who subsequently used it for the conquest of Sweden was also taboo in Jingdao, although not disputed. After the disintegration of the Vanic Web in the mid 1680s, recovered facts from archives Haraldsborg hint toward a Storish involvement. As of 1686, these allegations have yet to be proved.

Regardless, facts show that during those two years, approximately 85% of Hurmu's population then was brutally killed.

This episode is taught in schools in the Imperial State of Constancia, with the caveat that Jingdao still has a lot to answer for.
